Another favorite Patty Griffin quote:

...but I need a little place in the sun sometimes or I think I will die...

Amen, sistuh!


I had Chili Cheese Fritos for breakfast. Is that bad?

So we have a leak...yes, another one. That would be 3, count 'em t-h-r-e-e, since we've moved in. Our new carpet is really getting a workout. This time it's the washing machine plumbing in the walls. We have a fine and dandy plumber coming out tomorrow to take a look.

Bad news: in order to access the behind-the-wall shower leak, he has to bust through the dry wall.

Good news: our insurance covers dry wall repairs for points of entry! (We've been putting off fixing that water-damaged wall for a few'll just get wet again, we both have to work, we're now it will be taken care of!)

Bad news: I'll have to ask off for work to meet the plumber...we'll see how that one goes. Don't you hate using vacation days to deal with those dang plumbing issues?

There, Mother. I've taken out the (horrendous, awful, makes me want to barf because I can't believe I left them on my front porch for seven months) fake flowers, and planted new. Real ones. Alive. Growing. Thriving. Morning Glories. love, love

And yes, that is half a whiskey barrel on my porch. So sue me - it was there, and it was free.

I can't believe it - I actually have my very first international reader!!! Check my Clustr Map - I'm guessing England? Woo hoo!

Man, Oh Man

Well, we had an exciting little doozy of a time last night! What a thunderstorm! So, Lubbock made the news with our humongous dust storm and 70 mph winds that came along with the storm. As a result, here's what we came home to yesterday evening:

Our next door neighbor, Adelle, was very gracious about our tree taking up her whole entire yard. I think we were all just thankful that it decided to fall in the yard and not on the roof!

Since when have I been closer to 30 than 20??? Like ice water in the face when you think about it that way, huh?

Happy birthday to me...(sigh)

Yes, This IS Connie Chung

You're just gonna have to watch it for yourselves...I have no words.

Save Screech!

So as all of you know (or at least, those who know me well), I am a HUGE Saved By the Bell fan. Huge. So now that one of my best childhood friends is in trouble, I'm asking for your help.
Please, help Screech. He needs you.

My New Favorite Song

In the misty moonlight
by the flickering firelight
any place is alright
long as I'm with you

In a far-away land
on the tropic sea sand
if you hand's in my hand
I won't be blue

Way up on the mountain
or way down in the valley
I know I'll be happy
anyplace, anywhere, I don't care

In the misty moonlight
by the flickering firelight
any place is alright
long as you are there

I could be happy in one little room with only a table and chair. As happy as I'd be in a kingdom by the sea, darling, if you were there.
And I could be rich or I could be poor...but if you were by my side, I could be any place in this whole wide world and I know I'd be satisfied.

Way up on the mountain
or way down in the valley
I know I'll be happy
anyplace, anywhere, I don't care

by Jerry Wallace


Which has more caffeine - one small cuppa joe, or 32 oz of Mountain Dew?

Now one might reasonably deduce that it would be the MD. I mean, 32 oz is A LOT of caffeine.
I hate to admit it, but I generally drink this every morning, my only caffeine of the day.

But this morning, I decided to go for coffee. I mean, I was TIRED. One mug, and I'm wired. (Hey, I'm a poet and didn't know it.) Totally awake. Typing really fast. I just don't get it.

32 oz vs. 8 oz. Do the math.

I guess I just need to become a chemist and do the chemistry, huh? Then maybe it would make sense.

You know it's hot in your office when you open up the chocolate bar (who has been seductively calling my name all day) and it's melted.

Melts on your desk, not in your hands...

Oh, well, chocolate is chocolate, right?

Good Thing I Had Dental Floss!

The other day I ate a strawberry that took me eleven (that's 11...E-L-E-V-E-N) bites to get through. I tell you what, it was bigger 'n Christy!

It's Coming...

Coming this June. It's real, it's awesome, and I can't wait!

And they have a 24/7 MeowMix cam.

Can't get better than that.

My Sweeties

Annabelle LOVES to play outside (but she is still sleeping, and spending most of her time, inside - don't worry, Mother)

And here is a picture of her alter-ego, Psycho Kitty-of-the-Night

Oh, and Murphy says hi.
